[Homeroast] 2nd crack

There is much talk about stopping a roast before 2nd crack. I have a gene
roaster which has a cool button. If I press the cool button before 2nd
crack, I believe that the beans may still reach 2nd crack during the
process of cooling down. Is this roast considered then to have reached 2nd
crack? I prefer lighter roasts but not too light as then it becomes sour.
